Tumblr on whitewashing

“This person in this one image I’ve cherry-picked isnt the same exact color as they are in this other image I’ve cherry-picked and therefore the people behind it are racist whitewashing garbage.”

let me share something with you.

Me.

Me again.

still me.

believe it or not, this is yes– me as a fetus.

Fetus me, outside my house before the concert!! on the SAME DAY [ im even wearing the same shirt]

((whispers)) skin, especially dark skin, can and will look VERY different depending on the lighting, indoors vs outdoors, and the camera itself. Good artists/photographers will take this into consideration.

Now can we please stop having a fit every time a dark-skinned person looks lighter in a damn picture?
